My bad! CC has a config spec that provides a way to pick and
choose, or "filter" what files can be in a build. What's neat
about it, I can mix and match any trunked, tagged, or branched
files in the repos. For example, I can

element foo.c /b_R1/2
element * /b_R1/latest
element * /main/latest

This means, in this order...
1. Use v2 of foo.c from the b_R1 branch
2. Use b_R1 branch for the rest of the files,
   if the files are on that branch
3. Use the /main/latest version of the rest of

If I remove the second line, I'll ignore the b_R1 branch, except
for foo.c /b_R1/2, ON THE FLY.

I may have added the top line because I found a problem with
the /b_R1/latest version of foo.c (say v3), so I elected to
use v2 instead.

I can "commit" changes using config specs.
